About the show

"Rinse, Repeat" is a new play that conveys the painful truth about confronting a disorder that is often met with denial from both the patient and the people that love them. More…

Rachel hasn’t been home in four months. After fighting for her life at Renley, a trial weekend has been agreed upon. At first, Rachel couldn’t be happier to be reunited with her family. But what happens when the people you love most, the ones you believe want the best for you, are the ones causing the most damage without even knowing it? Where do you go when the place you feel you most belong might be the place that almost killed you in the first place? "Rinse, Repeat" sharply conveys the painful truth about a woman's fight for her life in the face of an eating disorder.

ADVISORIES: This play contains nudity. Recommended for ages 15 and up.

Don't see it if You couldn't care less about eating disorder. As the playwright said, maybe you didn't look hard enough...

Important, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you like well-acted dramas regardless of the subject matter. This one happens to be about an eating disorder & the resulting family dynamic.

Don't see it if dramas about serious health conditions make you uncomfortable or full nudity (even when done to excellent dramatic effect) makes you uneasy.

88
An impressive debut by this young playwright

See it if you can empathize with an upscale hyper-competitive family dealing with a daughter's anorexia.

Don't see it if you cannot fathom that people with eating disorders are not easily cured.

Also As I forgot to get a Playbill when seated, it was not until after the ... Read more Read less

Relevant, Ambitious, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if you are interested in the rarely-discussed but prevalent subject of disordered eating. That the playwright plays herself is powerful.

Don't see it if you seek something light and fun. This is serious and painful yet illuminates an important subject. I wanted more nuance in the parents.

Intense, Edgy, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want to witness a new work from a riveting young actor/playwright, who does not shirk from presenting uncomfortable truths and details.

Don't see it if Feraud can over-explain and contextualize at times. This may be the price of seeing a dauntingly precocious first work. It’s worth it.

Intense, Resonant, Great writing

See it if you don't look for entertainment - this is not a feel-good play. You'll walk away satisfied if you appreciate intense, character-driven work

Don't see it if you can't stomach intense and difficult interpersonal relationship, deep and honest look at a misunderstood disease, or wince at nudity,

Also A very powerful text with less-than-ideal execution. The message of th... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you can't stomach another overly ambitious play about a privileged disconnected family.

96
Riveting, Intense, Relevant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if It’s a well written and performed play, similar to Ordinary People, where we unfold the complexity of the characters and subject matter.

Don't see it if It’s not a comedy, and it’s very good. Don’t see it if you just want to laugh all night. There is no reason not to see it.
